Life is tough. And we could all use someone who is a source of constant support for us. For many of us, this person is our partner. However, this brings in the question: how to comfort your significant other? In times of stress and hardship, when your partner is going through a tough time, you may not always know what to do. And in many cases, there might be nothing that you can do! In such a case, how do you comfort your loved ones?
Most times, comforting does not mean that you have to do something. It simply means to just be there. To hear them out, regarding anything that they might have to say. It is okay if you do not have anything to say- whether it be giving an opinion, or ideas on how to fix a specific issue. On most days, they just want to feel heard. And have an outlet where they can share their worries, knowing that the other person will not judge them. When you just sit down and listen to your partner, they feel loved and comforted. Knowing that you are there to hear them out is also an indication that you will walk through tough times, alongside them. And that they will never be alone.
Other ways to comfort your significant other can include cooking them their comfort meals. Or taking care of bills and housework. So, on days when the world is tough on them, they do not have to worry about anything but themselves. This will help them deal with only the problem at hand effectively since they will not be occupied with daily responsibilities. Moreover, if they need any financial help, always be there to lend some money or contribute more than you usually do to your joint account. In the end, remember, it is always the little things that count!
